While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were dating, the prince released a statement through Kensington Palace telling the press to back off of Markle and her family after there were thinly-veiled racial comments printed in papers and all over the internet. But now things have gotten more awkward as it is a friend of Prince Charles' that's slinging the mud at the Duchess of Sussex and her family.
The Daily Mail says that an old friend of Prince Charles, Nicky Haslam, has been going off on Meghan Markle and her family to an odd degree. Haslam, an interior decorator, has stated that the whole Markle family is common. Haslam said that it was actually a good thing that Thomas Markle and family could not attend the royal wedding.
"They're frightfully common. It would have been awful if that huge lump [Meghan's father] had been there. The royals probably don't quite know how to deal with them."
"One person who wasn't common was her mother."
